Marula Oil: Virgin Organic

Organic Marula oil is obtained by cold pressing the kernels of Sclerocarya birrea. The extracted oil is then filtered, leaving a pale to golden yellow oil with a bland to slightly nutty odor. Marula Oil Virgin Organic is not refined, resulting in a virgin oil carrying the natural characteristics of the raw ingredient. Marula oil is noted for its remarkable absorbency into the skin without leaving a greasy residue. Marula oil fits perfectly into the natural cosmetic and personal care markets. Traditionally, the Tsonga people South Africa and Mozambique used it for moisturizing and cleansing purposes. Functionally, Marula oil is useful in cosmetics as it contains essential omega fatty acids such as linoleic, alphalinolenic and oleic acids. Marula oil is also naturally rich in tocopherols, sterols, and flavonoids. The flavonoids present (procianidine, galattotannin and catechin) deliver protective benefits and can help prevent reactive oxygen species and free radical damage that contributes to aging. Organic marula oil contains high levels of omega-3 oleic acids, natural antioxidants and is a stable oil.
